I help in a kitchen to feed the needy, and when we have hundreds of eggs to chop for egg salad sandwiches taking the time to peel them is out of the question. We crack the cooked eggs in half and scoop out the egg with a spoon.

That's the first I've ever heard of that

Thanks for taking one for the team, C.
Too good to be true I guess, unless it works better with old eggs, which peel easier anyway.

It probably does work with older eggs. These didn't have an air pocket...they were fresh from the hens.

Now I am hungry for a fresh egg hard boiled. I need to go to my friend's house with my spoon!

ice water here after eggs are cooked. leave in about twenty minutes. crack a bit on counter. work the bowl of a teaspoon just under shell and off comes the shell. never fails and is really quick.

Using a cooling rack (one that is a grid type) over a hotel pan you can "mash" a lot of hb eggs fairly quickly instead of chopping them.

That's exactly what we do, CWS! At home I use my square hole potato masher....that's why I thought of it. Great minds run in the same track!

I've been doing the baking soda thing for a few years and it's always worked very well for me.

I will try this, as well as the spoon thing. Always annoying when more egg sticks to the shell than comes off.
